So I'm sure everyone who is browsing the networking tab on this website is probably wondering the same thing: what is going on with the servers? And whether or not it's actually my ISP screwing up. After looking around everywhere and gathering information, I've compiled some knowledge that might help us point to a clear culprit. So here's what I've got. After getting into Destiny 2, after about 5minutes or so, I'd get disconnected - the baboon error shows up. After several attemps of "Contacting Destiny 2 servers", I'd get booted out to the login screen with the weasel error. So far, this has been a consistent occurrence for me and my friends. What I've done to test if it works: Used a VPN (specifically Urban VPN): Disconnected (Baboon) Used Wifi from ISP 1: Disconnected (Baboon) Wired connection from ISP 2: Disconnected (Centipede) Used mobile hot spot: Connected (everything seemed just fine) From this, I can assume that our ISPs aren't the issue (2 different ISP yielding the same error can't be a coincidence). Having a wired or wifi connection also makes no difference, as my friend who only has a wired connection also got kicked out. Using a VPN yield mixed results. Sometimes, I'd be fine (in the mornings), but at night, I'd get kicked out just the same (maybe it's due to quality of VPN) The best results I had was using my mobile data hot spot. Consistently, I was able to log in without issue and experice everything just fine. Conclusion: It's likely a problem with our ISP's connection to Bungie that causing an error, rather than our connection to our ISP. While using a mobile hot stop allows me to play the game, I will mention that before the blackout back in late November, everything was just fine playing on Wifi. It seems that the recent fix had caused some unintended effects to radiate out to all of us. Hopefully this data has been helpful. If you have any experiences you'd like to add, please feel free to comment. The more data we have, the more solid a case we can build.
